Mother Earth, Where Are You?

Mother Earth, Where are You?

This sandy air has no moisture to it

I feel the coming rage

Slumped shoulders bring war

Started by the chaos of a plague


If I have committed sins

I have asked for forgiveness

But I see Pharaoh

Judgement is imminent, nevertheless


I won the lottery

A chance of a lifetime

To be enslaved

You think I have it made


I see people not smile

It breaks my very core

I see the political system in upheaval

My praying knees are so feeble


This world is changing again

But for the worst

A pregnant planet

Whose sick baby is coming forth


So speedy and slick

When left to our own devices

We are weak and scared

Only holding it up closer in a crisis


No, I do care

Do you care that I have tended this garden of life?

I feel desperation coming through

Mother Earth, where are you?
